undefined control sequence \citet

Dear all,

I'm learning how to use bibtex. This might be a rookie mistake.

The document is: \documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}

and \cite{} works fine. However, since some of the entries has a long
list of authors, I try to use \citet{} which gives an error:

,----
| ERROR: Undefined control sequence.
| 
| --- TeX said ---
| l.71 \citet
|            {akiyama_ofc05}. Such properties are of key importance in the
| --- HELP ---
`----

Any ideas?

most likely you need the natbib package

It turns out I need to put this in the preamble.

% the only reason IEEEtran defined \NAT@parse was to allow cite.sty
% and hyperref.sty to get along. As this is no longer needed with the
% current versions of each, the \NAT@parse hack will no longer be
% needed or included in future versions of IEEEtran.
\makeatletter
\let\NAT@parse\undefined
\makeatother

\usepackage{natbib}

Thanks.

undefine a control-sequence
Hello! Just for curiosity: Assume that I have defined in (La)TeX the control-sequence "\foo". Assume that nowhere is written a definition for a control-sequence "\bar". So \bar is not defined. If I want to turn \foo back into a not-defined control-sequence, is it in this case sufficient to write: "\let\foo\bar" ? Is \foo really undefined afterwards or do my macros work for some other weird reason? Is there a reliable convention to leave "\undefined" without definition?

Undefined control sequence because of mbox in caption
Hello all, I'm having a problem when using mbox inside a figure caption. With mbox I get an "undefined control sequence" on my macro. Without mbox, everything is a-okay. I'm willing to drop the mbox, but I'm using it because I don't want the text in the mbox to be split between two lines. Is the \nobreakdash good enough to prevent breaking across two lines? Thanks very much.

plain + graphicx + bb = Undefined control sequence.
I've been happily using graphicx with plain TeX for quite a while (by first \input'ing miniltx). Thanks to all those involved. Today I wanted to use the bb= option, and that crashes and burns (TL2011). Here is a minimal non-working example: pdftex this: \input miniltx \makeatletter \def\Gin@driver{pdftex.def} \input graphicx.sty \makeatother \includegraphics[bb=1 2 3 4]{a6p7-soln} \bye I get the following output This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (TeX Live 2011) restricted \write18 enabled. entering extended mode (./a.tex (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/plain/graphics-pln/miniltx.tex ) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/graphicx.sty (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/keyval.sty) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/graphics.sty (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/trig.sty) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/latexconfig/graphics.cfg) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/pdftex-def/pdftex.def (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/generic/oberdiek/infwarerr.sty) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/generic/oberdiek/ltxcmds.sty) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/supp-pdf.mkii [Loading MPS to PDF converter (version 2006.09.02).] )))) <use a6p7-soln.pdf> !

Dynamically defined control sequences (plain TeX)
% Dynamically defined control sequences (plain TeX) % I am trying to get control sequences whose % name is defined at run-time. Page 40 of % The TeXbook discusses (in the second double % dangerous bend) going from a list of character % tokens to a control sequence. So I tried the following: \gdef\dynamicnamevalue#1#2{% {\xdef\csname #1teller\endcsname{Value for:#1 is:#2\par} }} \dynamicnamevalue{first}{stuff for first} \dynamicnamevalue{second}{stuff for second} % The following works and generates the line: % "Value for:second is:stuff for second" \csname secondteller\endcsname...

Undefined control sequence error in the list of figures
Hi, there I got the "undefined control sequence" error in the list of figures while using my own cls. I found it is related to the following section. \titlecontents{figure} [0pt] {} {FIGURE \thecontentslabel:\enscape\enspace} % the error will gone if leave this line blank {} {} {\hfill\contentspage} [] The outcome looks fine though.

Undefined control sequence
For the file manual.tex ( http://github.com/metaperl/ursala-doc ) when I run pdflatex manual.tex I get an 'Undefined control sequence' error but I do not know exactly what the problem is. Clearly, LaTeX has started to read ./pics/rendemo.tex (http:// github.com/metaperl/ursala-doc/blob/master/pics/rendemo.tex) and it is having an issue on line 4 which is: \psline[linestyle=dotted,linewidth=0.9pt,linecolor=black,fillstyle=none] {-}( 21.90, 91.38)(142.98,156.39) and then if I look in the .log file I see (./pics/rendemo.tex !

PassiveTeX and "Undefined control sequence."
Hello, I use Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r2 which contains teTeX 1.0.2+20011202. This version seems to not include PassiveTeX. Is this true? I downloaded the files from http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/macros/xmltex/contrib/passivetex/ into my working directory. When I apply xmltex on an example FO file, I get the message ! Undefined control sequence. l.31 \XMLstringX \prop@width<>proportional-column-width(1)</>. Can anybody imagine what is going wrong here? Wolfgang ...
